I started with a $4 brown long-sleeved onesie.
Then I found the Wilson logo and used Illustrator to layout the logo and laces. Then I flipped it so that I would have a mirror image so I could trace it onto the Wonder Under. Wonder Under is a fusible web used for adhering one fabric to another.
After it was traced on, I ironed it to white fabric.
Then I carefully cut out the logos and laces and ironed them onto the onesie. I started with the laces to make sure I got them centered up before adding the logos.
Then I used my sewing machine and did a zig-zag stitch around all the white fabric and added a black button to look like the hole where you would use an air pump to fill the ball. Add a pair of brown fleece pants, and Bert was ready to go!
Bert debuted his costume tonight for downtown merchants' trick-or-treat night. No candy for babies though; we just walked around and checked out all the other costumes. (Our favorite was a toddler dressed up as a gnome.) Then we came home and took a few pictures.
